This new service gives us a look at the future of how efficiently medical records and other information can be shared between patients and medical professionals.

The trick has always been how to securely and safely centralize all of our health information all in one place. Now the folks at Google have given you a place to gather your medical records from doctors, hospitals, and pharmacies and keep your doctors up-to-date about your health.

As this system develops you will be able to stop filling out the same paperwork every time you see a new doctor and should minimize repetitious lab tests.

In addition you will be able to maintain medical records often lost because of a move, change in jobs or in health insurance providers.

And best of all the Google folks are providing this valuable service without cost.

Here’s a new twist in the phone cost race toward zero. These folks give you an easy way to make long distance calls, international calls and conference calls with up to 5 friends, all without cost.

They give you a local number (in your area) for each friend or relative you will be calling and when you wish to call them you simply use that assigned number. The San Francisco Chronicle says: "After you click to get connected you listen to a ten second commercial before you can talk all you want for free. That's a nice and easy way to get your international calling fix without having to start an account or hand over some credit card information."

They currently provide this service to 32 countries -- and counting.

This interesting place looks like the only search engine of its kind. It can help you to scope out an area for trouble spots. You can use this site to get access to detailed maps of states, counties, cities and neighborhoods, all searchable by zip code. Once there you can view comments about troublesome neighbors, bad clusters of neighbors and registered sex offenders.

Keep in mind however that much of the information is provided anonymously and the contributors' motivation is not always clear.

Interesting – and can be addictive!

We are beginning to live in an information world of Wikis. If you live in a cave you may not know about the proliferation of these websites that allow users to add and edit content collectively. The term originates from a Hawaiian word that means "quick". Perhaps the best known wiki is Wikipedia.
